Before Lisa Tolossa took over the reins of her beauty center and renamed it Doo It Up Salon, she was an employee for the previous owner. In the five years before she purchased the business, she perfected her skills as a hairstylist by learning Redken and Schwarzkopf coloring methods, studying Framesi cutting techniques, and earning certifications from Brazilian Blowout, Cadiveu, Keratin Complex, and Joico.
Today, Tolossa captains a roster of stylists who primp clients at the salon’s nine hair stations, one nail station, and two private rooms. Amidst deep-purple accents, corrugated-metal walls, and Craftsman tool chests filled with beauty supplies, the multitalented staff - including nail technician and mani-pedi expert Lynne Ho - crafts new looks with an array of services for nails, hair, and skin. They also sell products by Eufora, Moroccanoil, Brazilian Blowout, and American Crew, which can be used to style coiffures or lubricate a squeaky robotic arm.
Aly Ramirez sees the artistry in styling hair, and combines creative savvy with technical talent to craft haircuts that flatter her clients. Besides cuts, the experienced stylist can sculpt hair into elegant updos, change up looks with highlights and all-over color, and add length and volume with extensions. She also offers facial waxing services and provides makeup applications.
Operating out of Definitions Salon & Spa, stylist Riley Elrod commands the loyalty of her clients through the deft manipulation of everything from shears to coloring products. Of course, she doesn't revamp hair alone; she's aided by Definitions' well-stock selection of styling accoutrements, including potions from trusted names such as Keune, Kenra, and Wella.
Gina has been beautifying clients since 1999, and has built up a loyal clientele with her attention to detail and her wide range of skincare services. To help complexions glow their brightest, Gina relies on Dermalogica products and advanced techniques such as oxygen infusion treatments and microdermabrasion. Each of her treatments zeroes in on a specific issue, whether that's signs of aging, acne, or inflammation. But Gina is an expert in more than facials. She also tints and perms brows and lashes, waxes away unwanted hair, and meticulously applies permanent makeup, imbuing skin with pigment that shaves time off morning routines and prevents the deforestation of lipstick fields.
Lookfine Threading and Beauty Salon's Upland beauty professionals vanquish blemishes with contemporary techniques, including electrical microcurrent treatments and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, as well as a passion for threading, the ancient art of sculpting eyebrows into shapely arches with a cotton strand. Meanwhile, the graceful curlicues and camouflaged exam answers characteristic of henna tattoos temporarily infuse complexions with a fresh aesthetic.
